WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Lisa McClain (R-MI) spoke on the House floor in remembrance of the more than 62 million helpless babies who have been aborted since the Supreme Court’s decision on Roe v. Wade in 1973.
“These children are just as worthy of life as a fully grown adult is. They are created in the image of God just as you and I are. Their lives should not be carelessly and despicably destroyed,” said Rep. McClain.

Below is her speech as delivered:
I rise today because I need this Congress to understand the failures of President Biden as our Mr. Speaker this week marks forty-nine years since the landmark Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade.
Forty-nine years since the choice won over life in the eyes of the American people.
My colleagues on the other side of the aisle applaud Roe v. Wade and have no problem with the more than sixty-two million innocent babies that have aborted since 1973. I however find these numbers to be sickening.
These children are just as worthy of life as a fully grown adult is. They are created in the image of God just as you and I are. Their lives should not be carelessly and despicably destroyed.
My colleagues on the other side of the aisle preach and parade human rights, but where is the outrage for the human rights of the unborn.
It’s frightening, non-existent, that their lack of consistency makes it very clear what their priorities are. How can you claim to care for one life when you don’t care for all lives, no matter how small?
Thank you, Mr. Speaker, and I yield back.
